Abstract

BackgroundAttitudes can be a precursor to the decision of whether or not to try a new practice. In order to tailor the implementation of evidence-based practices EBPs in mental health settings, we must first consider practitioner attitudes towards EBP adoption. To assess these attitudes, the Evidence-Based Practice Attitude Scale EBPAS was developed. The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Norwegian version of the EBPAS, and to examine differences in attitudes towards implementing EBPs among mental health practitioners.

MethodsThe EBPAS was translated into Norwegian and administered to 294 practitioners from seven primary and 22 specialized mental care units within a defined geographical area of Norway.

ResultsThe EBPAS showed good psychometric properties. The less clinical experience the practitioner had, the more positive their attitude toward EBPs. Primary care practitioners reported more positive attitudes towards implementing EBPs that were required of them than specialized care practitioners.

ConclusionsThe Norwegian version of the EBPAS is a promising tool for measuring implementation readiness in mental health services, and can be used in clinical practice to tailor implementation efforts.

Trial registrationThe study was approved by the regional committees for medical and health research ethics REK 2013-2035 on 25 of May, 2014.
